  • A great topical-yet-oddly-timeless podcast

  • Thought Cops are a must add to your weekly podcast queue

    Join Kevin and Grant as they take on the most annoying, toxic, cringy, and otherwise problematic characters and content from the internet. The problem I have with a lot of podcasts is they don’t have a clear and properly sized scope. Not the case with Thought Cops. If you’ve ever ranted about something ppl are doing on facebook or twitter, these guys have probably talked about it. Give em a listen. Speaking of listen, can’t wait to listen to you guys read my 5 star review

  • OOwee

    Sometimes when I am just Vibing in my car, I hear sirens and then Kevin goes WWWWWWWELCOME TO THOUGHT COPS and it scares me awake, but there are no real police, so I fall comfortably back to sleep to the soothing sounds of Grant’s descent into insanity.

  • Not all heroes

    They say not all heroes wear capes... and saying that is exactly the kind of thought crime that Officers Kevin and Grant are here to punish. Our intrepid heroes take down the web's most unsavory characters and deputize new friends along the way in a neverending effort to clean up the tweets, the grams and the internet as a whole.
